When people buy units in a condominium, they actually are buying only the space inside the walls of their units. Everything outside their walls is common space, in which all unit owners have shared rights. Hallways, elevators, pools and exercise rooms, for example, are all common spaces. The condominium association is responsible for maintaining these common areas. Each unit owner is a shareholder in the condo association, to which the unit owners pay dues, fees and special assessments.
Relations between the association and a unit owner can turn sour for any number of reasons. Sometimes, the unit owner believes the association is unduly restrictive. In other cases, the association believes a unit owner is disregarding the condo’s rules or abusing the common areas. At such times, guidance from a residential real estate attorney at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP with long experience in condominium law can help navigate the path to resolution of the dispute.
Both the unit owner and the association have rights and responsibilities. These commonly include:
